Chuck Starkey Carbon Fiber Shaft * Pics Up* - 09-01-2018, 11:55 AM

Received a Carbon Fiber shaft from Chuck on Wednesday that I have been playing around with the last few days. Took me a about a hr to adjust to the shaft from my bdcue ss/360.

The shaft plays really good, has a nice stiff hit. Draw seemed to be really easy and will take me a bit to get use to. It definitely feels lighter then my other wood shafts but when on the cue I didn't notice to much difference.

Overall, first impressions, I really like it. Ill work on getting some pictures up and updating this thread the more I play with the shaft for a more appropriate review.

Update -

After playing with the shaft for a month, I absolutely love it. A quick wipe down of the shaft when it gets a little grabby and everything is smooth as could be. I did change the tip to a medium ivory ultraskin since I was having a issue focusing on a black tip with the black shaft.


I seem to play best with a soft/medium stroke, deflection seems very low but I still have to figure out a way to test this between my other shafts.

I have started using ivory ultraskins on all the new shafts I make for the same reason.

I have been looking for a carbon fiber shaft like the predator but not willing to pay that much. Cuetec is coming out with one. Don't know much about it or the cost. Anyone with info on it?

Don't like the "dart" appearance. What does it cost?

The MSRP (manufacturer suggested retail price) for the shaft is $449.

I'm not going to quote a price for him since there's many variables but expect $300ish depending on options.

The dart appearance was because of my request for the long straight taper. Although a little non traditional looking I've gotten use to it and the taper or there lack of is what I wanted

The first ones looked like the dart, the 2nd generation shafts I now make look like standard shaft size.
Mine cost $300
